GREENWAYS Girona

The restoration and adaptation of the four greenways in our area allow us to go from the deepest reaches of the Girona Pyrenees to the warm, light-filled Costa Brava either by bike or on foot, unveiling with each stroke of the pedal, with each step, the diversity of landscapes, products, and peoples we encounter along the way.

There is a total of 125 km of railway tracks crisscrossing five of the eight counties of Girona - Baix Empordà, Gironès, La Selva, Garrotxa and Ripollès counties - divided into four sections:

1.Iron and Coal Route: Ripoll-Sant Joan de les Abadesses - Ogassa

2.Narrow-Gauge Railway Route: Olot-Girona

3.Narrow-Gauge Railway Route: Girona-Sant Feliu de Guíxols

4.“Little Train” Route Palamós-Palafrugell

The greenways are trails that are reserved exclusively for hikers and cyclists, with gentle slopes that generally do not exceed 3%. As a result, except for some linking stretches indicated in the fact sheets, the trails are accessible to people with reduced mobility.

They are very safe trails, because the use of motor-powered vehicles is absolutely forbidden over nearly all of the trails. Most of the greenways in Girona run along the former railway network, which was gradually discontinued as unviable after the rapid rise of road transport.
